I don't see how WotC and Paizo have the time to fight with each other. Where's the money in it?

And if they were fighting, wouldn't we have heard about it already?

Energy would be better spent reaching out to Paizo and WotC to ask them to release the article.

Look for me and my content at EN World (user name: sanishiver).

Just in case anyone is interested, I finally went through and completed the archive in my signature. Up till now I only had everything forward of March of '14. Everything listed in the WotC Archive is there in a Google Drive folder, saved in PDF format. If you find something amiss, or an article I somehow overlooked, holler and I'll do what I can to fix it.

Dang it... I saw this thread pop up, and I eagerly clicked the link, hoping we'd finally gotten new Edlore. Y'all got my hopes up!

I'm going to go cry in a corner, now.

Sorry, Wooly. I thought of that after I posted. I shall go Atone now.

Well there was a recent remark on Enworld that stated articles would be returning. Let us hope we see the return of the Bearded One then!

Still no awesome new articles.

Out of interest when was the last time anyone even looked at an article on the WoTC website. I look in about once a month to scan for a Forging the Realms article and when I don't see one I quickly close it.

I used to check the website 3 or 4 times a week in 3e days (wyrms of the north was awesome), stopped completely with 4e and then had a brief revivial with Forging the Realms.

I wonder if everyone else is the same and I wonder if WoTC have noticed a lull in their web traffic?

I have almost stopped using their D&D page too. However not everyone is interested in FR, most players/DMs mainly care about the new crunch column that WotC are periodically releasing, so I don't think that Ed's article being -sadly- dropped will make a significative difference.

I still check the website weekly. I've given up hope of seeing Realms stuff for awhile, but the Sword Coast Legends game is looking intriguing, and I like the GF9 miniatures (not the Wizkids miniatures.)

Nope, I've learned my lesson.

I no longer check the site at all and just wait for ENWorld to report something interesting. I also dislike the way the new site is organised to minimise utility.

However, as a 4E DM and DDi subscriber, I still enjoy the perfectly functional previous site that has been archived. :)

Cheers

What you guys see as a negative I see as a positive.

Do you think Ed has stopped writing? 'The World's busiest man' is constantly writing new material for FR. He says so himself (through THO). Do you think he does this just for fun? (Okay... he probably does... but still..) I think the stuff he is writing is all going to be applied to something else, and thats why these articles have gone on the 'back burner'.

He's being hush-hush. WotC is being hush-hush. We know he's working on FR lore. We also know others (who we all love and respect) are at it as well. We know Ed has started a new publishing venture. We know WotC is going with freelancers for all its future products.

Yes... I don't see this 'dark patch' as gloom & despair... I see it as the darkness just before the dawn.

And I could very well be wrong. It does happen occasionally (). I don't know anything more then just about anyone else here - I'm just connecting the dots.

If WotC farmed the development of the FR to Ed and his new publishing company, it would be their best move regarding the Realms up to now, and I'm sure that many fans would be very happy with that (I would surely be).

That's certainly an interesting conjecture, and could explain a lot. I hope you're right!

Ed created his own publishing company to have FR work farmed out to him? I don't think my heart could take that kind of excitement. Seriously hope that happens. We're a campaign guide and about 48 Volo's Guides behind schedule! Heheheh.

Thanks for that. The dark cloud of pessimism was rearing its ugly head lately.

Not to have FR work farmed out, but to publish what Ed wants to publish amongst a group of other projects.

Regardless, the level of pessimism around here is getting pretty tiresome. In how many threads do we need to see the exact same complaints aired by the same people for the umpteenth time?

Would it kill anyone to try enjoying the Realms for a change?

Look for me and my content at EN World (user name: sanishiver).

I must agree. The constant pessimism is quite wearying... And assuming the worst possible conclusion from everything WotC does and does not do is also tiresome.

Daz, if that was referring to me, no. I was talking about my own attitude.
